Hidden away memories locked up never to be seen.
Pain that’s been witnessed both agonising and obscene.
Conscience never heeded whilst acting in the name of right.
Lives that were taken in the shadows of the night.
Should you have ignored what was asked and turned aside?
Forgetting all the truths you told only remembering how you’d lied.
Your lies live in the darkness where death stands in wait,
To separate you from sanity altering the path to your fate.
There’s no time in this life of ours, there’s only the present you will find.
The future is but an illusion that paints rumours in the mind.
But remedies are forbidden inside this anguished cell,
For the nightmares that exist on the other side of hell.
